Good water management. A well-designed, professionally installed gutter and downspout system provides protection against erosion, plant damage and basement flooding.
Gutters and downspouts are important for the health and well-being of your house. By directing roof runoff away from your foundation walls, this drainage system is your first line of defense against basement or crawl space flooding.
A well-functioning gutter and downspout system preserves your topsoil and protects exterior siding and trim from backsplash water that can damage paint and cause wood rot.
The experts at Krumwiede Roofing and Exteriors can install quality gutters that will provide effective roof drainage year round!

Most homes have gutters and downspouts but still sustain damage because of various problems. For example, gutters that frequently clog with leaves, twigs and other debris will overflow, spilling water everywhere. Gutters can be pitched improperly or be undersized for the roof areas they drain. In some situations, downspout extensions may be necessary to direct runoff farther away from the house. Aesthetic considerations are also important. Old gutters and downspouts that are dented or damaged detract from a home’s appearance.
Because older gutters & downspouts can be difficult and costly to repair, many homeowners elect to replace old with new. Gutter and downspout choices are more varied today than ever before. The major decisions are explained below.
